Former Oregon State standout Tres Tinkle is signing an exhibit 10 deal with the Lakers, per source.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) November 20, 2020
An Exhibit 10 contract, commonly referred to as an E-10, is essentially a training camp invite that guarantees the player will receive a bonus between $5,000 to $50,000 in the event that they are waived by the NBA team and then sign a deal with that franchise’s G League affiliate. However if the player is waived and chooses to pursue an overseas career, the bonus is then forfeited. E-10 contracts can also be converted into a two-way contract, which would come with a salary guarantee for the player.
Tres had an outstanding college career for the Beavers playing for his father and former UM Grizzly coach and player Wayne Tinkle. The Missoula Hellgate graduate finished his five-year OSU career as the program’s all-time leading scorer (2,233 points). Tinkle averaged 17.7 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 1.6 steals in 126 college games for the Beavers.
